Band: The Deathrettes (Cape Town, South Africa)
They converged in early 2015 to form an animalistic quartet consisting of Dylan Rooibokkie on lead vocals and guitar, Warren Fisher on rhythm guitar, Michael Clarke on bass and Charl Stemmet on drums.
Staying true to their prowling nature, the band formed out of a necessity for
movement: get up and groove or get out of the way. With a sound best described as Garage Groove, the instruments hold close strings attached to early 60s psych and modern day garage music.
Their debut single, ‘Animal’, was released in May 2016 to make a statement that was well received, with positive reviews throughout South Africa and Europe as well as campus and national radio airplay. ‘Animal’ was recorded and mixed by legendary producer Theo Crous at Bellville Studios and Mastered by Rogan Kelsey at Kelsey Mastering.
